Organic fluorides have been widely applied in various spheres, especially in the medical field. However, due to the distinctive reactivity of fluorine, the introduction of fluorine atom has always been a problem in organic chemistry. As a novel synthetic method developed in recent years, organic electrochemical synthesis has greatly expanded the boundaries of organic reactions, which have enabled the development of many efficient and eco-friendly fluorination methods. In this paper, we will focus on these examples of electro-chemical fluorination, and discuss the possible role of electrochemical methods in the field of fluoro-chemistry.

Key words: Electro-organic chemistry, Fluorochemistry, Organic synthesis, Methodology
